A landmark monograph on an unprecedented scale that allows all aspects of Mark Rothko' s career to be heard in full voice, published in close collaboration with the artist' s family and featuring beloved works from major collections as well as never-before-seen canvases and paintings on paper. Deluxe and comprehensive, this revelatory volume examines the brilliance of Mark Rothko (1903-1970), a pioneer of the New York School and major figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement. Illustrated with more than 275 images that explore his paintings, prints, and works on paper, this book highlights the best-known and also lesser-known works by Rothko - from his early figurative and Surrealist works to his mesmerising colour-field paintings of immense scale to the more restricted palette of his luminous later works and his final series of black-and-grey paintings. Among Rothko' s artistic philosophies, he held that painting was a deeply psychological and spiritual experience through which basic human emotions could be communicated. This is the first book to include foldouts that highlight works from the Rothko Chapel in Houston and the Rothko Room at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D. C. Kate Rothko Prizel and Christopher Rothko draw on intimate knowledge of the artworks and the artist' s life to give a fuller picture of their father and place him within the context of art history; they endeavour to give an impartial portrait - the man and his work - while introducing personal details where they can enlighten. Alexander Nemerov and Hiroshi Sugimoto provide reflections about the artist' s work.
Christopher Rothko is the son of Mark Rothko and is actively involved in managing his father' s legacy. He has helped prepare more than two dozen Rothko exhibitions. Kate Rothko Prizel is the daughter of Mark Rothko. She fought and won a prolonged legal battle that resulted in the return of almost 700 of her father' s works to his estate. Alexander Nemerov is Professor at Stanford University. Hiroshi Sugimoto is a contemporary photographer and architect.
